frame of the 2008 EGAS International Bid Round. The joint venture is 90% Total that will also have the role of Operator and 10% Enel.

E. El Burullus offshore block covers an area of 2516 square kilometers and is situated approximately 70 kilometers from the coast, in water depths varying from 100 to 1600
